Summary
"The author of In the Mind Fields now gives us a comprehensive journalistic exploration of our culture's flagging ability to pay attention, infused with the personal struggles and insights of a woman coming to terms with the demands and distractions of the information age. The average American checks their phone 150 times a day, but we touch our phones about 2,617 times in those same hours. Casey Schwartz wants to understand this change in our lives that seemingly happened without our consent. From attention disorders and medications, mindfulness, psychedelics and creativity, to a brief history of distraction itself, Schwartz acts as our sympathetic and qualified guide. Both validating and galvanizing, Attention examines our lives ruled by distraction. Schwartz's personal attempt to revive her attention ("I'm in as deep as anyone, as splintered, dependent, and distracted. I am jittery and incomplete without my phone") and preserve her authentic life will resonate with readers who also find it very nearly impossible to avoid the pixilated siren call of our screens"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"In our fast-paced, tech-obsessed lives, rarely do we pay genuine, close attention to one another. With all that's going on in the world, and the never-ending demands of our daily lives, most of us are too stressed and preoccupied with our own thoughts and worries to be able to really listen to each other for long. Often, we seem to somehow "miss" each other, misunderstand each other, or talk past each other. Our ability to tune in to ourselves and to others seems to be withering. Many of us are left wishing for someone who could really listen, understand, and genuinely connect with us. In Missing Each Other, researchers and clinicians Edward Brodkin and Ashley Pallathra argue that we must find the ability to be in tune with each other again, and they show us how. Based on years of research that they conducted together in a National Institutes of Mental Health-funded clinical study, the authors take a wide-ranging and surprising journey through fields as diverse as social neuroscience and autism research, music performance, pro basketball, and tai chi. They use these stories to introduce the four principal components of attunement: Relaxed Awareness, Listening, Understanding, and Mutual Responsiveness -- explaining the science, research, and biology underlying these pillars of human connection, but also providing readers with exercises through which they can improve their own skills and abilities in each"-- Provided by publisher.
